Vulnerability (learned from Brenรฉ Brown)
Thoughts?

What are your thoughts on being vulnerable? Does it scare you?

Are you watching this right now? x

I’ve been fearful all my life. A deep resonating fear that tentacled it’s way into my being. A fear born out of trauma in early childhood and suppressing the growth of my inner child. That fear only learnt anger and destruction as a coping tool. It took many years of pain and coping through drugs, sex and resentment of self for me to learn that I needed to share this fear by writing and talking. I realized I talk a lot but actually don’t talk about the deep essence of my pain. Today I try to embrace it as a teacher through mentors and spiritual healing but when my energy is low I fall back into anger and resentment. I guess it’s recognizing the NA concept I was taught of called HALT. If you’re: Hungry Angry Lonely Tired Then stop to recognize it and give yourself a break.

I think your hitting everything on the head. It's quite beautiful. Thank you. And vulnerability is just knowledging your human.

So great to see this information being delivered to the masses . . . just recently read her book The Gifts of Imperfection . . . total game changer and I love sharing what I have learned with the people I mentor through my role. Vulnerability is the gateway to authenticity . . . Keep touching lives Russell - it brings meaning to our existence.

It use to scare me but now i am free of a huge amount of fear. I am ok with being vulnerable but have learned to be cautious with whom I am vulnerable. Thank you for sharing, it is so important to show each other we can be ourselves.

In return you often feel overwhelming abundance of joy. ๐Ÿ’š Brene is a wise one

The realization of impermanence changed my life. Knowing that everything is constantly changing from one form to another, gives me relief and comfort during my difficult moments, and allows me to fully appreciate and enjoy the beautiful moments, as I know they will also be gone. Fear is a strange thing and a difficult to handle. But If you accept and acknowledge its presence and allow yourself to be observant it's amazing how much you grow from it. I personally sit on meditation and address the emotion almost like a person: "Ok, you are here, welcome. What is it that you want me to learn?" Thank you for these videos and for sharing your thoughts! x

Oh yeah, very much so. Not being able to stay strong, manage, be enough, it is the worst feeling... but I do know good things can come out of letting yourself being vulnerable, like becoming a mom โค That has made me vulnerable and strong at the same time๐Ÿฅฐ

I’m free. I have let it go. I wear my vulnerability on my sleeve. Yet I am strong. I am perceived as a leader. It was great to let go of the perceived need to worry about what others think about me because honestly, no one really cares that much about what you do.

Thank you. I think being vulnerable eventually can lead you to a place of incredible strength. With vulnerability comes humility, and from humility you may observe "reality" as the playground it is. When you realize that your importance is not absolute- but at best relative, you will have less fear and may experience this beautiful game we call life to the fullest. Be blessed, and I wish you all the best in your important work.

I am currently working toward my SW degree and currently am working in a treatment facility working with women and women with children who suffer from substance use disorder. I love it but am struggling with where I want to be in the world of SW ? I definitely want to work on a activism side and trying to change policies. I need some guidance. I want to be on the cutting edge of SW. Want to create change.

I have practiced this well in the last year however I still need some learning work with my boundaries . Being open to ideas is good - I had no fear and enjoyed that state of being! However - I did ignore red flags in the new situation I was briefly involved in . So lesson learnt - not closing the gate on vulnerability . Learnt also that my boundaries need to be respected and I have to stop being so empathetic to the wrong people. I also realise that fear is the biggest part of my anxiety and have arrived at a great place with that . Work in progress - but within my ForwardOnPlan I am doing well . Love all the help - from many podcasts and your little snippets . More reading to do ... your book ๐Ÿ“š

I love you Russell brand. What a beautiful human being you are .

You have grown sooo much! I love u being out there in recovery. So am I! I am a light being! And I can shine once again! Thank you for your insight!โคโคโค๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅโ˜ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Oh man Russell Brand I’ve been hanging out for you to do something with Brene Brown’s work I keep checking under the skin to see if she’s a guest.

Thank you for sharing your perspectives Russell Brand. Watching Brene Brown talk about being open to acknowledging our personal vulnerabilities and fears helped change my life. After I was diagnosed with PTSD I thought "now I have to be brave and strong" & I did some weird behaviours modelling what I thought these would be... but it didn't work. Only when I shared some of my fears and actually was vulnerable could I face the fear, face the challenges and choose how to respond. And over times, some mistakes and some mediocre days, now I can say I live with a brave heart and win through being real and honest each day. I'm not scared of being vulnerable anymore ๐Ÿ˜Š

I love Her, your gift is your words and how you express what you know! I admire that!

Inspite of trauma and pain...I turn up. I make myself vulnerable and sometimes its hell but most times its rewarding and hopeful xo

It scares me to death! I grew up in a rough part of London,I was bullied mercilessly and if you showed an ounce of vulnerability or if they made you cry,it was like sharks scenting blood.So i learned to be hard faced,to pretend they weren’t hurting me.I kept it all in.And its made me ill.I love Brene Brown and shes right...vulnerability is actually strength.I am trying very hard to change my way of being but it isn’t easy.

yes and i transformed my fears into love and i feel peaceful <3 best feeling!

Yes! I walked the Camino de Santiago a few years back and ran into foot trouble. An entire community came to my aide to get me literally back on my feet. Later, I would be able to help another pilgrim, to overcome her exhaustion and doubt. When I am vulnerable, all sorts of strength is given to me, and in return, I am lent with the ability to help others. This was the most important lesson I learned walking across Spain. Thanks Russell Brand for helping me to remember.

Brene is amazing and couple that with Gabor Mate (don’t have the French symbol on my keyboard) and what he espouses, is a mind-blowing mix. Vulnerability is essential for growth; to learn how to be true and real...

It totally scares me...because I then have to admit I am not perfect! If I am not perfect people will leave me...!? Rationally I know that’s not true but when we allow ourselves to be truly vulnerable we are in heart space not headspace โค๏ธ

Vulnerability is dependent upon ones ability to be truly authentic and present with self and others. Brene calls this being brave and courageous because one must surrender all of ones fears and let ones guard down...

Just discovered her and listening to ‘the power of vulnerability’ - fantastic!

Two of my absolute favorite people together โคโคโค

OMG! My two favorite teachers in one place together!! I will definitely be listening.

Two of my favorite Sober warriors Brene Brown and Russell Brand. In January, After years of trying to moderate and numerous attempts at AA at 47, I took the plunge to get sober. A few weeks ago I got my 1st tattoo which is symbolic of the serenity prayer. Less than a week after getting the tattoo I was at a book store in Austin repurchasing The Gifts of Imperfection and who was checking out beside me Brené Brown. Divine appointments are all around us when we are ready to listen. Thanks for your insights, presence and humor RB.

This I have to hear/witness.. Brene Brown & Russell Brand. Should be good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ž

Love this womannโค๏ธโค๏ธshe has taught me so much about myself xx

How do I get in touch with you personally? I need advice on divorce. I'm an alcoholic. I'm trying not to drink. That is always my go to. You probably have too much going on. But I think your a wonderful example. Never mind about contact. Can you please talk about divorce and how an alcoholic can deal with it?

Shes amazing. How fun you two together.

I always love what you share- however I sense that Russell- you have a health issue- - I see it - perhaps you might consider fasting?

I would love to just lay down and take a nap with him.

Oh wow, my two favorite people chatting. I'm there.

Love this...thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ˜š have a blessed and beautiful day ๐Ÿ˜š

By acknowledging gratitude! Helps me stay humble and positive! Love Love Love! What a great way to start my day! Thank you!

Thank you, your words consistently help me. 20 years clean and sober ๐Ÿค“

I live by this everyday..thank you for sharing

Very much enjoying and appreciating your new videos. Thank you ๐Ÿ™

Always a beautiful reminder. Thank you and peace be with you.

I sing HU for 20 minutes a day and do a spiritual exercise every day to stay in love and gratitude. ๐Ÿ’™

Russell... You are an amazing, authentic, intuitive, spiritual EMPATH. Thank you for your wonderful mental workouts. Keeps this little Empath on her twinkle toes and mainting her flow in this unbalanced planet. Love and Light Mr. R. Stay golden. Keep smiling. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ•‰๏ธโ™’๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ˜Š

Having listened to and read your words since the day I got sober 4 years ago, one of many lessons I apply daily, and a simple one, is, be kind and help others when you can. I benefit from this simply by putting the energy I would have used on fueling my sadness or anger, into kindness and empathy for my fellow humans. Or dogs should that be the creature that finds me in the moment. You changed my mind and my life man, thank you.

one thing I do is: I get my dog ready for a walk, open the door and as soon as that fresh air hits my nostrils I FEEL GREAT!!!!!!! I love watching my dog enjoying his walk as I am taking it all in and enjoying my walk. I really enjoy listening to people such as yourself inspiring me with their story and watching them walk the walk and interviewing interesting people. I says prayers, either think about or write about what I am grateful for. I listened to DAILY HABITS OF SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE with Brian Rose the other day and was reminded of using affirmations daily. I'm not sure if you've interviewed him or if he has interviewed you; but, that would be a good thing. I love laughing. Thank you for all your interesting points of view and questions.

Walk in nature every day and spend time with animals, (they have much to teach us about being in the present moment). Nurture relationships with lovely humans, (not assholes) laugh, practice self care, never stop learning and share knowledge โ˜บ๏ธ

We can manifest our life it’s a projection of our thoughts when you see something you don’t like send forgiveness to yourself and other and love

Thank you for sharing! Great message

Agreed! I stay mentally healthy by meditation, grateful journaling and move out of my comfort zone and say hello to everyone I pass by.

Russell you have helped me unfuck my mind at times. Thank you. my friend.

You’re soul has come full circle. I’m so filled with joy that you get this. It’s a beautiful place to be. Looking forward to crossing paths in the realm of quantum entanglement ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿฆ‹๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜

I agree, any time I’m doing something for others I feel at ease and at peace. We live in a very “treat yourself” age it seems (which self love is of course a good thing), and I think we miss the fact that you actually take care of yourself when you meet the needs of others. Hope that makes sense! Thank you again for another incredible messageโœจ

Listening to this has elevated me a little. Thank you!

I dont understand why the comments are not in time posted order. Fb is creepy manipulative. Anyway I read them all. This was sinple lovely truth. Agree w the lady who said you are open and sincerely loving in your shows. And talk to everyone after even when tired. The guy who said you're not yet free from wanting money...LOL! Right after watching this free. Agree w Jalonna whom I met at your shows and ALL THE PEOPLE IN YOUR AUDIENCE ARE KIND FRIENDLY AND INTERESTING. Really neat. I LOVE Mentors. Beautiful writing. I'm continuously fighting sugar addiction but going to start going to overeaters really I need NA it is a drug! To the man unsure how to pray I would read Emmet Fox's Sermon on the Mount and remember that prayer is talking to God and meditation is listening. If you arent sure Anyone is listening ask to be shown. If Someone is listening you should get some kind of answer right? (Pay attention to your dreams). God bless you and yours Russell we all love you so much.

I’m totally agree, in order for me to stay sane and clean in recovery, I have to practice meditation, and acceptance, I’ve been basically isolated for the last 3 years as I’m 3 years clean, but going back in society is not easy In A city as small as mine,

Excellent! You are becoming a sage! Thank you so much your words and intentions will really help people traverse this difficult world we find ourselves in! ๐Ÿ™

Russell i wish i had you living under my bed as my Conscience. Fortunately i have a very special friend in my life ( not like that ) who values all that you stand for ...( Antonio Graça) Humanity needs a “ Being “ like you “ Like a great “ pair of shoes” that inspires one to “ walk” better I “ therefore “ Salute you !

Very smart, insightful man. Love this.

Speaks a lot of sense this guy very clever man

Russell, I am an atheist. Prayer to whom or what? I believe in what you say but am puzzled.

I have been struggling with apathy for a while, but recently I feel the philosophy of individual responsibility becoming powerful once again, for which I am grateful because I've missed it

Hmmm. Very thought provoking. Thank you, Russell!

I love this Russell, you describe exactly what has been going on in my slightly chaotic mind for the last ten years. I have, without realising it, been trying to achieve the utopia you talk about, I had no idea that my choices have been getting me closer and how lucky I am every day to be where I am. Your clip has given me a real sense of excitement, that I am not following some aimless dream all on my own. I thought I had become some boring judgmental individual, getting ever more impatient with society for not taking responsibility for its own destiny, shouting in my head ‘why don’t any of you care!!’ hugely frustrated by the inertia and self destruct mode I see every day. You have made me feel a hell of a lot better this morning! ๐Ÿ˜

I'm amazed that RB is still using internet to comunicate with his followers. Shouldn't he use the astral field or pigeons. Maybe smoke signaling for celebration of saturnalias.. He's painting such a romantic world: no antibiotics no vaccine no ansthesic no toilet paper no nada. Couldn't wait to see him and his gang filmed by ISS for Discovery channel. So what's gonna be guys: Andaman Islands? New Zeeland.. Don't forget to pack some biscuits for the first couple of weeks until the organism adapts to the lizards and roots. Have fun

Thank you Russell ๐Ÿ™ your words always resonate strongly and your energy reaches through the tecchie screens

lovely! thank you o wise one Hare Krsna! <3

For a bereaved parent, every breath is a desperate attempt to reestablish everything we knew of life, because losing our child proved everything we believed wrong. This isn't living; it's the long wait.

I think that you lost the sparkle. Possibly years ago. I tried but I can't. I possibly never loose love to World. How can I? Yesterday coming from Church and old lady stopped and waited for me. I was sure, she needs help. But instead,she said compliment about my Hair. So kind.๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ That's the things you are living for. Be kind!

Your posts truly inspire me. It was such a pleasure seeing and meeting you last night! Happy Father's Day! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

Such a wise piece of dialogue. If anyone is depressed. And is this apathy coat. This will help them. Thank you. Peace love

Excellent insight that's worth repeating! Thank you! You rock my mind clear to better. Thank you! AEinstein Universe inspires mind set to notice life nuances. #teachyourchildren everyone is a daily miracle and better with connections that save and instead of drug, empirically speaking.

Humility is important if we are to be in touch with our fellow man. Apathy is the result of government who are completely out of touch with the needs of their people. Dictators are responsible for apathy in their countries. Feeling helpless with a governmental system that seeks to take away taxes from a hard earned paycheck creates apathy. When Jesus was growing up in Nazareth he watched as the Roman Empire lived off of the backs of the poor. They demanded high property taxes causing many to lose their homes. The same is true today. People in California can't afford a house or even an apartment since the cost has skyrocketed. Many people are living in RV's on the side of the road in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Yet we see billions of dollars being spent irresponsibly by our government. This is what breeds apathy so we must as you say Russell create our own safe and comfortable existence by helping others and keeping our families close. โค Greed and Power will destroy us if left unchecked.

Watching this man go through his journey towards enlightenment is inspiring to me in my journey. We all want to achieve enlightenment. He might never achieve it, I might never achieve it. But the journey is worth a try.

Doing an amazing job Russell. Thanks for you being you mate

You have gone from a person that was a bit of a labour to a person who makes me happy. Nice one russell

I love your philosophy Russell. I wish you would start a new political party. We need an intelligent, environmentally aware, trustworthy, ethical alternative to the current political parties.

Very unlighty. There is denial and cognitive dissonance one rather rejects then rationalise ... I quite, I'll focus on the people who are open to new ideas, insights and resolutions ... As we say here in Holland don't pull on a dead horse ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ˜Œ

Use smaller words mate, my brain is fried. ๐Ÿคฃ

Empathy and and the respect of social cohesion exist in the animal kingdom, but they have no religion /God.

The way to overcome apathy is to connect on a one-to-one level with people. I know I can't change the world, but through my work with immigrants, I know I have changed generations. Every time I help a young immigrant master English and fill in the holes in their education so that they can attain a college degree and build a better life for themselves, their families, and their future generations, I feel empowered. I know what I am building on the macro level will, over time, grow and change my community on a larger scale. Find a way to be a stepping stone for others and you can achieve real and lasting change over time.

I would love to see/hear you interview Ricky Gervais!!!! Understand his belief or lack of belief system and why it works for him. Both views, yours and his are so far apart and then so similar. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‘

My new quote for today: "I am personally responsible for changing the world."

The real wake up should be realizing there is no God who cares and watches over us from the sky and we are all responsible for our actions. That doesn't mean life is purposless. I think many ppl would love to live in utopia, what is utopia? It's a neverland for grown ups..

He really is a spiritual and wise person. I made that change several years ago and feel better for it. Needless, to say, I am in a different place than some friends.

A few practical obstacle still persist for me. I need a place to live and I'm tied to the system because of that.

Comment on Facebook

I love your content! What the health really shook me up. I did find it very confusing to watch "It's a magic pill" after that... Your content would be even better, may I suggest, if the cameras were positioned so that we can see more of your faces?

So excited for this interview!

Curious what people think of carnivore diets that people are told to go on because it can help with their health. Would be really interesting to hear both sides of that. Though I think most vegans are doing it for the moral stand point not because it’s healthier

You’re doing great things, Russel Brand! Thank you for being and staying humble.

Two words. Regenerative Agriculture. And yes, that includes raising animals for meat, rotational grazing, permaculture and community based agriculture and trade.

I love you Russell..you are an amazing person

Love, love, love him. When he debates meat eaters he always remains so calm and reasonable and they are just about to explode. ha ha. What the Health is an amazing documentary!

I am so glad that you are addressing this. Both of these films are really influential in moving people away from eating animals and animal products, which is a good thing for those animals!

He is awesome, I love him and what the truth bombs that he spreads <3

It’s also important to note that the same is true for a lot of studies - this is not just a vegan related issue - studies can be carried out with bias on any subject - I have similar strong feelings about studies into the ketogenic lifestyle and the whole diet and fitness industry. Complex carb production is super big business - our world revolves around carbs - society is fed ‘balanced diet’ information from every angle and largely don’t question it - we need to see past the ends of our own noses on this people - wake up!

That’s right, people are overwhelmed with a glut of information and now, “don’t Google that” is a thing and they won’t listen to anyone who isn’t a “doctor” even if they took 13 years to write a book documenting how they healed from chronic dis-ease using natural and alternative modalities! Ugh!!! And the doctors don’t learn about nutrition (okay they hear a lecture on it in their 10 years of education). A free-range egg is a lot better for someone than a bag of processed whatever, and Coca-Cola tried to hire me in their “organic” department (few years ago). Believe me, that opened my eyes to the whole “infiltrate” discussion! โค๏ธ๐Ÿฆ‹๐ŸŒ€๐Ÿ˜‰

Just so you know Canada's Food Guide has changed to now have 1/2 your meal be veggies and fruits. 1/4 protein and 1/4 grains. a good step forward I think. they haven't updated this food guide since the 80s so people and governments are catching on as to what actually constitutes healthy eating.

Thank you. That's very important for us to know. But let's keep in mind that going vegan is not a panaceum, it's just one of many little steps in the right direction. Eating locally and seasonally matters. Putting an extra jumper and warm socks instead of heating our houses to the max in winter. Wearing clothes sitting in our closets instead of buying newest fashion. Drinking home made drinks instead of buying sodas. The list is very long indeed and every step counts.

Instead of all the lovely vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians, paleo and keto followers arguing, let’s use our voice and money to challenge big “food” corporations and the use of insecticides and pesticides, to buy local or wild with no packaging and improve animal welfare. Otherwise ‘they’ win - divide and conquer!

Drs wanted my daughter on SIX meds for LIFE for asthma and allergies. Thanks to a strict holistic program and getting away from inflammatory foods she is free from all meds which drs insisted she “needed”

I don’t have to read multiple studies, to know that animals feel pain and don’t want to die. So: if you could live a fulfilling life, and NOT contribute to others suffering/death, then why not try to? (Vegan for animals for 13 years, and as satisfied as ever)

Organic eggs from chickens who are truly well cared for have a very specific taste/nutritional value that has nothing to do with the “industry” Pretty healthy. A third option ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Well you can find any kind of "study" that fits perfectly your idea, the objective truth is not a part of issue. In the end it all comes down to a choice. I'm not vegetarian but I would say that 50% ( or more)of what I eat is fruits and vegetable. I do enjoy the occasional rare steak once in a while and I do enjoy a good cheese but I don't drink milk.

I think you’re doing an amazing job here Russell ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Jane from Scotland ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ

Interesting conversations These might not change the whole world but wil certainly create a new thinking process wave in humanity and force people to make better quality researched choices

Tom Bursnall - it was your videos you shared that made me decide to give up milk/dairy. The soya/almond/cashew alternatives are tastier in my mind. And it is all in our minds. If it looks like milk/meat etc we seem more accepting. So, that given, I realise I still have a long way to go before I can become vegan. I haven't eaten red meat for a while - But - I need to stop thinking I need meat in my diet. Difficult when the industries continually shove it down our throats that we do (As said in this video) I'll get there. But thanks for opening my eyes and mind.

Whether you believe the medical information or not, the legalised and sustained cruelty that many, many of these animals go through is difficult to dispute.

I eat loads of vegetables and limit my meat intake..butI gotta say... not ONCE in my lifetime have I read an interview with one of those "oldest humans" and heard them say "I credit my vegan diet" for living to 125.

Great movies - here’s to compassion, Veganism and the end of the ‘happy farms’ myth - the animal industry is cruel and the slaughterhouse is a horror show......๐ŸŒฑ try love!

Man eggs are amazing, like proper amazing food. Change my mind.

I just love and respect this guy. Whenever i watch one of his clips i feel like he is speaking on my behald, he is putting all these feelings to words that i cannot. i am in my fourth year of awakening and it is still continuing of course and it's getting harder. My biggest problem is the fact that i still have to stay in the system for money. I hate that fact. I just wish we could do everything Russel jus said in the clip.

I love that you are critical of nihilism when so many in our generation just accept it as fact. There is inherent meaning in existence.

You have a great mind. You're truly blessed!

Russell you are so insightful. If we all would know that the worth of our soul is no greater or less than another we could experience a happier society. Apathy is part of the balance of life.

Spot on!...here’s a thought....If every living thing has a life cycle it has a point of bloom or peak. So surely it can only be the same for humans. I feel that the consciousness awakening phenomena humans are now beginning to encounter isn’t just a culmination of our circumstantial reaction to the physical world but that perhaps our DNA has now activated a point of ‘bloom’. Awakening has arrived and that awakening starts with the self, to become aware of oneself, our conditioning and our reactions and behaviours and where they came from, once we are healed of the experience of this egoic world can we hope to shape and build a half decent outer world...

Your world is how you see it - there is a lot of positive and negative things happening - that is how you can be creative and intelligent by turning the negative positive and keeping the positive from going negative and learning to feel the spirit of being in the positive which triggers happy hormones that lights up your brain - do some drawing with the right side of the brain every day may help your mood because it gives you a bit of control , awareness and understanding of your real world around you

Yes people are waking up and realising the governments that rule this world have been using them as just worker ants . Time to take our future into our own hands .

My Dad, is a great Father and a terrible parent. Kinda reminds me of the bare-gears of a government who make things work at the bare minimum, protects you and makes you feel safe. And a politician- who promises you an easier trip every day and helps reaps the benifits of the fat of the land. You can't have one without displacing the other, even if you wake up to find that you are your own parent. <3

So much love for Russel Brand, speaking truth and inspiring personal awakening is one of the best ways of combatting the apathy of our societal conditioning, thankyou for keeping us inspired Russel Brand♥๏ธ

I admire what you are doing. I think you are a shining light in a world of darkness. Keep posting and uplifting me and others. You are also a funny guyโค

I envy your ability to eloquently articulate your thoughts and I totally relate! Thanks for the connection!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿธ

I admit I've fallen down in apathy when I feel I have no purpose in life. When I feel I can't change people, their views nor their actions. I find apathy kind of refreshing state of mind at times, it's like a big release, as giving birth! Gives away all the burdons till someone else to carry the heavy weight of this destructive world we seem to live in. ๐Ÿ™‚

Great food for thought! Yes I can relate to your words! Thank you Russell Brand! Love your inspirational videos!

I really enjoy your lessons. They resonate with me. Thank you.

I very much enjoyed what he said about the will (and everything else), it made me realize much of my mental and emotional anxieties come from trying to be perfect all the time, especially at work, wanting everyone to agree with me, everyone else to be perfect, etc....I see now that this is my will. Perhaps if I can let go of this, the spiritual being I certainly know is there can at least get a little more air.

I started, with the help of a HP, to change my inner world, my thoughts, through meditation.....

You have a beautiful soul my friend I can so strongly agree to what you have said word for word I just wish more people would belive it hurts to see so many selfish people not care

Very different to my booky wook, which I enjoyed all those years ago too! Amazing stuff ๐Ÿ”ฅ

You have a way of articulating things that I've been struggling with but have been unable to voice. Thank you.

Yes how to push past were we are stuck.. &find a bigger purpose.. how to break free.. &live a meaningful fulfilling life.. Yes your right.. ๐Ÿ˜Š but how to get there.. sacrifice as you say. . How to let go of things.. that no longer serve us.. Thanks you always hit the nail on the head.. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I love you russell brand!! Helluva come up and helluva inspiration!

I just ordered his book Mentor. Excited to see how it is.

I have struggled with addiction for 23 years, have gotten clean many times only to always go back to drugs. I am 100 days clean and am really struggling with this topic. Apathy and anhedonia. I live in a good sober community in Minneapolis, but it seems so difficult for me to engage or care to engage. Anyway, thanks for the video.

To be accountable makes the puppeters just puppets.๐Ÿ˜˜Love your way of being articulate.

You're great ๐Ÿ’– and appreciated. Thank you for mirroring and eloquating my thoughts so magnificently. X

Really want to watch! And I loved hearing all those birds chirping in the background ๐Ÿ™‚ xo <3 Just a little highlight ๐Ÿ™‚

What the Health and Forks Over Knives changed my life 3 years ago <3 Can't wait to listen.

Loved What the Health

Yes blessings thank you so much for sharing I'll check that out

It's because of these brilliant documentaries that I went vegan over a year ago now. As a result my hyperthyroidism has now disappeared, and I'm now off meds. I run mon-fri each morning b4 the school run. Feel better now I'm in my 50s than 20-30 yrs ago. Love you Russell...looking forward to hearing your convo with Rich Roll soon โœŒ๐Ÿ’š

Awesome! Definately need to listen to! Love WTH and it made such an impact I went wfpb since 2Years! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฟ

Yes!! I was shocked. Went vegan over night 1 1/2 years ago after watching those two in one evening. Then Land of Hope and Glory and Earthlings a few days later.

Yes - changed my life. Been plant based for 2 years now โค๏ธ

I haven't seen them but I'll check them out after seeing this. The AMOUNT of great content you produce is mind-blowing. Hope you'll consider covering the topic of "laziness" and/or "inactivity" in the future. I felt like getting sober would magically eliminate this issue but I'm in this creative funk. Not ideal in the photography biz. Thanks for all you do for our Russell!

I love you too!!

Yes! What The Health turned my Husband and I vegan 3 weeks ago. We have so much more energy and do not have any more bazaar allergies/food reactions anymore.

Not Cowspiracy, I can’t, but yes to what the health!

These films have totally changed how I feel about meat. Been without meat for 2 weeks now and on a plant based diet.

Love these films .. thanks Kip! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

Seen Cowspiracy - off to watch What The Health now thanks Russ

Perfect timing! I just became a vegan myself.

I love you Russell Brand!

Huge fan of your thoughtful insights Russell. Well done.

Russell Brand please do a talk about how to live in a world that is full of me eaters when you are an ethical vegan vegetarian I find it very heartbreaking to unfortunately have the intelligence to know what the truth is

The quality of most affordable meat in America has fallen so much that I can barely stand the smell of it or the look of it. I'm about ready anyway.

These films changed my life! I have been vegan for going on 4 years now!

Yey!!! Vegan for 32 years ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹

YES!!! Thanks for highlighting these documentaries Russell โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Love your work, Russell. Especially in the Recovery world. That said, both of these documentaries are dogmatic and RIDDLED with fallacies and factual errors.

Cowspiracy made me go vegan cold turkey. After learning the facts, there was no way I could continnue to fuel the destruction of the planet in this way. Information is the key - if you know better, you do better ๐Ÿ‘

Comment on Facebook

I love your ways of talking very spiritual excellent

Took me many years of therapy to get to half the self confidence I thought I could ever have! The work pays off๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Well spoken, and thought provoking as always! Thank you Russell!

Good topic...made me think. The things that make me feel more comfortable with myself are meditation, deep work in therapy, recovery and sense of humor. Those dinner parties are hard though and I love that you brought that up. It's a good reminder to let go of control and be easy breezy! Thx!

When I was younger I did have confidence. It gets more difficult in older age. I am 67-years-old now and my husband died a month ago. Now I will need to build a whole new life without him and that will take confidence. Thank you for your wisdom Russell, I really need this right now. โค

I love listening to you talk , it’s almost therapeutic. We all have a person within us that wishes to be someone else because we think that’s better. We are all individuals and should learn to love ourselves more than we do. โค๏ธ

This man's words and wisdom have helped me see things in perspective and his way with words has helped me battle depression along with support from family and friends. love ya RB ๐Ÿ’™

Fab advice and at the right time for my journey....you just gave me some really good questions to ask myself, thanks for the tips! ๐Ÿฆ‹

Wise words Russell โ˜บ๏ธ I’m a therapeutic Counsellor, working primarily with young people and so many are seeking external validation as opposed to internal, which ultimately only manifests as a lack of confidence, low self esteem and general misery ๐Ÿ˜“ Mindfulness practice along with talk therapy challenges and transforms this which enables confidence to grow - allowing people to be OK with their authentic self ๐Ÿ’œ

You are actually a great philosopher. Some of the best people I know have really spent time on themselves to become the kind and caring people they are today, who really ask themselves why they are feeling a certain way and then kindly direct themselves in the right direction. It's true you cant expect yourself to be the 'best' at everything all the time or the most confident, sometimes its just relieving to sit back and watch the world do its own thing, and not try to control or expect anything from it or yourself.

I’m introverted to the extreme, don’t like parties and socializing in groups, I don’t do small talk well. I’ve been treated for chronic depression since I was 30, 35 years and I am now finally feeling truly comfortable and confident because I avoid things I done enjoy! I don’t have to be like anyone else. I meet my type of person rather organically and love one on one hanging out. Mostly I hang out at home with my husband. I don’t need tons of superficial friends to feel good about myself. I am blessed with a strong sense of spirituality which I have taken to a new level with the help of AA. It’s great to live another day clean and sober.

I Always love listening to your words of wisdom ๐Ÿ™ thank you Russell โค๏ธ

Thankyou for sharing you have a great understanding of the human spirit

Thank you for sharing your words of wisdom. ๐Ÿ™Œ

I have to remember to be careful in allowing someone else's self confidence take over my own confidence because they see it as a detriment to their own wellbeing. Sometimes I get lost an need advice so I turn to someone and that can quite easily happen. Sadly.

Who’d of thought I had so much in common with your good self ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for speaking so plainly and saying out loud what so many of us worry about with in ourselves. Beautiful sharing. Much appreciated.

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ blessings Russell, thank you for sharing

When I (mostly) stopped comparing myself to others, judging and criticizing myself, combined with recognizing progress and acknowledging my accomplishments— most of all, personal growth— authentic confidence rose up in me. Today, I feel good about who I am, and the woman I continue to evolve into.

Thank you Russell. I appreciate your experience, strength and hope! Keep being awesome and shining your light to help others see!

You can only ever be you. I stopped trying to please everyone else, and stopped trying to live up to their standards for an accomplished human a long time ago. Ever since that I have been at peace at least 1/2 the time. The second half I’ll question wether or not I live up to my own standers- but these are also built up by that mirror image created by trying to be all that everybody expected. In reality it doesn’t matter what you do, or how you act in social situations. At the bottom line that’s not important, the only thing important is to be- and you already are. By that note you are already confident, simply by being you. Be present, that in itself is confidence.

Still learning. I have a very low self confidence. Always had. To the point I almost faint in some situations. When I feel like this, I try and see people around myself as me, if it makes sense. They prbl have exact same feeling rn around this table of 12 people, you know... I feel sometimes maybe what i am feeling is actually not my feeling, but most of theirs combined and bombarded onto me. Just to imagine that I am an observer in this situation makes me stay sane. ๐Ÿค”

I’ve learned (and I’m still learning) that when I accept myself as I AM, right now, in this moment (‘flaws’ and all), then with that acceptance comes a sense of still confidence that I can carry with me throughout my day. Whenever I begin to compare myself to others, however, I always fall short. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ

Awesome!! Love what u say each and every time!!! ♥๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป♥๏ธ

thank you for the beautiful words!!! we shouldnt compare ourselves agains other;but rather against the person we were yesterday!!

Comment on Facebook

Be in the world and perceive the world motivated by love and not fear and ask For Help from Jesus Christ to show you the way ๐Ÿ™

This was a great refreshing conversation love it and you Russell ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

I am not a believer in superstitions or vague ideas. I do believe in love as a felt experience and intentional action, and there is much love in this conversation. Thank you for sharing your journey, Mr. Brand.

Turning away from pleasure seems such a shame... Why is pleasure bad for you? Surely it depends how its gained? A life without pleasure seems a wasted life to me... Love is a great pleasure... The greatest in fact!

God has done GREAT things for me and Holy is His name.

I truly wish Russel Brand was my friend. โค

My question to the Bishop would be how is he living the ‘poorer, weaker, less strong and less pompous’ life? Where does he live? How is he getting around? How does he spend most of his time? In a nice setting with a big vehicle? The word that always sticks out with me most in the bible is hypocrite. John the Baptist is the most compelling storyline as he really lived the values espoused by JC. It’s very easy to talk about living like JC and I’m not seeing it here sorry.

The sad thing is that's the reason I've left so many churches is because I could see that the "church" was not about the people is was about the number and popularity you could gain. Jesus came to serve not to be served, if we lived by that concept, my God what a beautiful world we would live in.

This was a very refreshing bit of dialogue.

Great conversation. Turning around -in a biblical sense- could also mean going back to Genesis, the very beginning. As intended originally, fully human in the perfect way we were created. Too bad we messed it up in chapter 3... Turning around all the way. Might be a good thing.

It does take you out of yourself and the negative and help you think in a more positive creative way with a great love which you must act on - it is good to read the parables to see how opposite to the rat race you have to be which takes a bit of intelligence and compassion which lights up the brain with happy hormones

This interview, despite it being on russle brands page, and dispose it coming from a leader in the catholic religion, leaves me joyful! So many Catholics have it all backwards and miss out on the focus of Jesus being the way to the truth. Good job russle for finding a good one ๐Ÿ˜‰ Goes to show he’s actually read his bible!

Turn to christ? He will accept you. Now what does this actually mean? Read some book written by confused people who thought they knew something, then embrace a life of mental messages, look towards others for reassurance that your mad experience is ok cause it's happening to other christians. These things are said, like.....Turn to christ but what does that truly mean?

Always enjoyed listening to your podcast shame you have moved to a paid option via Luminary so much for keeping your feet grounded. All about the money now.

Jesus came!! To give us life! And life to the full and Jesus came to give us live and live in abundance! It is not a sin for Gods people to be rich! But in my life the less i have the better

Wish this priest was able to require all priest follow his lead. But so long as they will not turn around as a whole I do not see the need to be lead by them. I can read, and pray, ( meditate) without some man telling me how.

I'm a Christian. I don't attend Church. I've been reading and enjoying learning about Buddhism. Not all priests are bad people. Most religious organizations are wealthy, why not giving the money to the poor like Christ told us to do. The Catholic Church has millions.

I studied theology for 8 years and then, finally, had a good “repent” and now see the “truth” about the story. The word “repent”, comes from the Greek word metanoia meta-change and noia-mind... so to change your mind. (Do a 180 and go the other way). Jesus was by no means poor. He had his own accountant.. they gambled for his robe at his crucifixion. They brought him gold/frankincense/murr at his birth. They lowered a cripple in the roof of his own house.. problem is the church don’t even know what the story is about. Look up Jason De Costa on YouTube. He probably knows the book better than anyone. It’s a story about ISRAEL. At THAT time.. Here’s the real truth-unless you were alive at that time, the book has absolutely nothing to do with you. Christians are roll playing. It’s ok I guess. As long as they raise their own and others frequency and don’t try convert people to believe you need to be saved and born again, or make you believe in hell-which was invented by the early church.. also, “Satan” is not a proper noun-it’s a description. It means “accuser”... who was the “accuser of the brethren”??? Answer: The LAW! A heavy pill to swallow I know.. it took me years to see this. Oh and biblically; when they mention “heaven and earth”, they are referring to the tabernacle of Moses, not planet earth. “For god so loved the world..” what world?? Planet earth?? No, The judiastic law world.. It’s a story about Israel. Hope this helps.. I can go into detail.. ๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™‚๏ธ

I completely agree with this sentiment. From my own experience a big part of problems humans have is the dissonance created in the gap between our logical expectations of how the world should be, and our emotional reactions to the things that are actually providing us with satisfaction. For example what good is a notion of justice or fairness, if our attempt to act on that notion causes us greater dissatisfaction than the feeling that existed in the first place? The same logic applies to material pursuits, in that yes certain things might add to out life, but often the addition is far more marginal than the energy or effort expended in pursuit. Kind Regards and have a great weekend everyone. Alex Minton

The problem is the world is too full of pride to turn their hearts and minds to the truth. People always say, well God hasn't really shown or proven Himself? Well, I disagree strongly, Jesus came and died and rose from the dead, proved it to everyone and then took a photograph whilst He was doing it and not just any photograph but a 3D holographic x-ray one we call today the Turin Shroud and left also with it a folded up head cloth with the same blood, spices and dirt from Jerusalem in the cloth. I mean, what more do you want?

Organized religion is good for those who believe in it. However, it should never be forced upon anyone! You do not need a church to believe in God, you can pray anywhere and anywhere can be a church.

Great discussion! Well worth watching!

Love yourself and love others, all else is a distraction and illusion!!! Repent is to change your Attitude

My mom died yesterday...they said it was leukemia...her father died of that. That's what I was supposed to be tested for. she died suddenly. She didn't even get the testing done but the doctor was sure it was that. Russell Brand I'm really sad

I believe that if religion was truly about this more people would follow it, but the is correct it has been about power. And control. That is why many people have turned away from religion all together. No church such as the Catholic Church should have so much wealth. Also, they shouldn’t harbor sexual predators. They shouldn’t have any power when it comes to legal matters like they have for centuries actually since the beginning.

Thank you Russell, for sharing this video. Great words of wisdom & so true. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’œ

I’ve had a recent relapse with my mental health and am suffering. I know it will pass and am grateful for your examples. Thank you for loving your best life.

I love this. As someone who works to help people experiencing anxiety, this makes so much sense and is part of the work that I am involved in. Gratitude, connection - both with others and ourselves - living in and being aware of the moment, creating an environment of groundedness, of healthy habits such as being in nature, eating, sleeping well... We don’t have to live in anxiety. We can learn to be at peace. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Yes. The transition. HOLDING the awareness. Thank you for this. So lovely.

Perfect, this is brilliant, amazing advice โœŒ๏ธโค๏ธ

Thank you so much for your wonderful advice. Short and to the point. I loved you as 'Arthur' ๐Ÿ˜Š...but I LOVE and RESPECT you so much now! Namaste โค

I appreciate all of your insights Russell. Thank you for taking the care and time.

Man thanks!! How I would love to meet you! This is so excellently brought at some kind of exceptional level that you just immediatly get it. Thanks for being here man!

I just love you Russ! Really I do. Recovery is the best place to be. Not only have I lost 100+lbs... but i have been given a new family who cheer me on. Spiritual guidance in all my affairs... I am not my thoughts... I am not my feelings... I am my awareness... and in this space I can conveine with the atheist god of my understanding... ๐Ÿ™‚

Very true! But... well I worked 15 sober years with awareness, spirituality, gratitude. I came a long way! I really did. And I got a great life, beyond my biggest hopes! But still I woke up every morning with doomsday inside. I got better and better on dealing with it, but one day I just thought that a whole life (since I was eight!) with anxiety and depressions, and allmost 30 years of drugs and booze, mayby my brain had gotten programmed, or scarred(I have read that depression leaves scars in braintissue) into a constant of black. I talked to a doctor and decided to give meds a chance. Now I have eaten a very mild ssri-medicin in a low dose for 5 years. And it is a freedom for me. I am not cut off or nummed, I am still spiritual, emotional, gratefull, sad happy angry... But I dont start every day deep down in the colemine. The energy I have spent on dealing with anxiety and darkness is now mine to use creativly. I have allways frowned at medicin, at ”happypills” etc. But for me: great! I am very glad I tried.

Thank you. Perfect timing. I appreciate your insights and sharing โค๏ธ

Russell Brand you are such an amazing soul. Thank you for sharing your insights. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅฐ

Love it Russell Brand. I’ve been sober 17 years and have learned to live with the same fundamentals. God bless you in your journey and your quest to help others

Maybe our fear is that we realize we are not really in control like we want to be-because there is a higher power who has given us a purpose for our life and we are all searching outside of ourselves for it which gives us anxiety when our light and answers are within us, no need to search outwardly but to dismantle ourselves inwardly and build us up again properly and with self love and compassion But who do you say I am? didn’t Jesus ask this? Who do you think you are truly Russell? A humble servant to your fellow man? I do. Service and humility is key! I love St.Teresa of Avila she said this. St.Therese’s Little way-you would benefit from the Little Way. Check it out. Praying for you! Happy birthday. Pls pray for me.

I believe the only thing we are ever really dealing with is “our” thoughts (I like to call them “the thoughts”) and our emotions. I find there is so much peace and power in this because it solidifies that we truly are the creators of our experience. It’s how we relate to “the mind” and emotions, and reprogramming from our preconditions. ๐Ÿ–ค #evolfleS

As usual you nailed it! I love your words, most of all I love your sharing with all of us out here, so we don’t feel so alone and helpless and can relate! You’re the best!

Oooooffffffff ..... DESPERATELY needed to hear this right now. Thank you very much for sharing this. I really like the notion of fear as something 'moving around' continously, migrating. I will definately be more aware of this now as I struggle with fear/anxiety. Bless ๐Ÿ™

Thank you for sharing. I have a feeling, that I'm not that grateful. I will try to be mindful of that.

Spot on Russell! I’ve had to find this out myself over the last year and I’m so glad you just confirmed it all. Fantastic watch. Sharing with all x

Thank you! I’ve been really struggling this past month with anxiety and giving myself anxiety about having anxiety. I do notice I am don’t practice thankfulness as much as I used to. I’ve been focusing on loss rather than what I have

Very nice sir. Love the insight and thoughts around this. I live with constant anxiety, focused on the material needs to support my family. The act of internal recognition and gratitude towards what one has, has been lost on me. I will definitely take this message to heart .

I have found a lot of peace in gratitude and acknowledgment of where I am , what I’m doing. Not what I have as such. Acceptance of others behaviour

Happy birthday Russell. It's mine 2.

love you Man

Im very interested in this....Aand.....is it your birthday??????........ love your face off russel brand

I really love Russell’s videos. I go through them as often as possible & just pick one or a few for the day & just ruminate on them & how I can apply them to not only my past & present but I’m really at the point of trying to apply them in my mind to how I will approach future happenings. It’s helped me at a current time in my life where I feel not lost...but a bit off track at the moment. If I’m being honest I’ve let someone I had a child with mentally break the person I once was & sought to be... who I thought I was & what I thought I could handle... no longer with eachother I’m really trying to apply these teachings in my life going forward so I can impart wisdom on our son as I grow myself.

Always makes me laugh and weird confession, but I’d happily add the Russell mans shirts and necklaces to my wardrobe. Need to see an interview with the mum. She’s no doubt fabulous.

Yes. Not every action requires a reaction. Sometimes you just need to meet people where they are; and then leave them there.

One of my favorite quotes ever: Grandiosity is almost always a cover for despair. โค๏ธ

I’m enjoying RB reinventing himself as a guru.

Steer clear but if you have to be around them kill them with kindness because it will either piss them off or soften them up. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Yesterday I went to get my original identification certified by a JP at the chemist. When I arrived, I was told it would be a little wait, maybe 20 mins. Yep, no prob, free service, I get it. When the JP approaches, he comes across a bit of what one would call a grumpy old man ๐Ÿ‘ด He takes my things upstairs and returns to tell me that he’s accidentally stamped my original marriage certificate - no apology. The stamp says something like “I certify this to be a true copy of the original.” Hmmm, this can’t be good - I think to myself. I call births, deaths and marriages and they confirm my fears that the document is now void. I go back in to have the discussion with the very short grumpy old man who is now much grumpier that I’m sharing news a new one costs $58. During this conversation, he said to me “Signing this document for you was the worst bloody thing that’s happened in my life.” Wow, with a smile on my dial I said.. if that’s the worst thing, you’ve lived a pretty good life then hey.. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ Sorry very short grumpy old man.. your negative vibes don’t rub off on me and I ain’t triggered.

It's the greatest discovery that other people are none of my business! ๐Ÿ˜ Great chat โค

The biggest thing is practise staying above the battlefield. If you engage your ego with another ego its just craziness all around.

Mate.......you have no idea how timely this is! I am experiencing a difficult situation now. I went to bed asking the Great One, to provide me with a way forward. Funnily enough, I had a dream that you feautured in last night. I can't really remember it....but your essence was there. Then you post this this morning! Thank you for sharing these really important gifts of wisdom. I really appreciate you. Have a grand day sir.....much love from Australia xxx

"affecting" instead of "effecting" ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you for sharing ♥๏ธ

Thanks Russell. I always tell my kids “Don’t take anything personally.” It really never is about you. Sending much love. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŒปโค๏ธ

You are such a clever man Russell. Thanks for your wise words.

Again Russel I love this thank you! I am going to say “Remember this person is looking at their universe through their own scope of understanding” when drama yet again breaks lose in my work environment. Can you do a video on toxic work environment?

Punch in the face works wonders for an attitude adjustment.

I love you, you're bloody awesome. This is a real valuable one.

You can't do anything when someone feels that they are more superior than you , or jealous maybe , or even constantly picking or putting you down all the while , It's hard to ignore them or to let it go over your head , because really they are so unhappy with their lot they have to take it out on someone , we just end up feeling miserable and dread seeing / working with them , someone said to me to imagine yourself holding a large mirror and just reflect back to them all the misery they are spouting at you ,or imagine you are encased in a bright white ball of light which shields you against negativety ๐Ÿ˜

Omg I love this so much. I take everything upon myself and get really stressed out about things. Thanks for the words of wisdom Russell Brand. <3

I lived with in my opinion..a difficult and awkward person for over 30 years.married. yeah I got released . And now I'm in recovery from this behaviour. I'm now very strong willed hopefully to never have to go through this s..t. Again . Xx

I seriously needed this today...thank you. Ottis Johnson & I loved seeing you in LA on the 25th. It was so nice of you to offer to come if he needed something with the clients he works with in treatment. It was so amazing to meet you & hear your story.

So very true Russell, always a pleasure as always to listen to your posts ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

I love the" Teacher "bit What I'm certain about is I can't change anyone but myself I accept the person who has wronged me and treat them as a sick person . It's a beautiful thing when I don't react although I don't get it right every time.

Wicked kõrero. I am very much trying to understand the lessons and training myself to just sit quietly and calmly in the car โ˜บ a lot easier to say than do for someone who is very emotive and reactive! But I've still got time to learn ๐Ÿ‘

I miss the hilarious Russell....

This happened the other day. I realized in the moment and was able to step outside of it and just observe. What I thought was “this isn’t actually them...” What I’m seeing is the mask of all their childhood wounds, hurts, traumas and history. I was able to just observe and then their words didn’t even impact me.

Great advice i love how you illustrate it so relatabley

10 years ago (May 2009) I met Russell at a book signing in LA for My Booky Wook. Still one of my favorite memories and I'm so proud of how well he's doing these days.

That was awesome Russell, I wish I could have been there. No I don’t, I wish I could hang out with you for a day lol I don’t have questions for you I just want to enjoy the experience of knowing you as more than an internet figure.
